  • Front and Rear Tire sizes, Tire Make & Model 275/35-18 Toyo Proxes R888R Tires
  • Suspension Modifications, Camber Plates MCS 2 Way Non-remote
  • Any required alignment settings such as added negative camber We don't have exact alignment specs for this car but we recommend a minimum of -3.5 degrees of negative camber to run this setup.
  • Any other required modification (Spacers, fender rolling, etc.) Ground Control Camber plates
